Road Trip Outtake: Still Here After All These Decades

I am currently on a trip visiting friends and family. On Saturday my travels took me past these two Volkswagen vans. Yeah, they look a bit forlorn. What’s interesting about this (at least to me) is that these two vans have been sitting in this exact same location just east of Morristown, Tennessee since at least 1983, which is when I first saw them! For years I have been meaning to stop and snap some pictures, and this year I finally made it happen.

It’s hard to say why they are still sitting here, or to know just how much longer they will remain there. All I know is that this is just one more thing that brings back fond memories of childhood roadtrips.
